    Demonize

    Demonize / Daemonize With Node.js

    This library will demonize a program and return the child process. It can also create a standalone demonizable script that can be started just like a bash script ./demon.js

    Examples

    const Demonize = require('demonize');
     
    const options = {
        arg: 'server.js',
        env: { PORT: 8000 },
        err: __dirname + '/out.log',
        out: __dirname + '/out.log'
    };
     
    const child = await Demonize.it(options);
    console.log(child);
    const Demonize = require('demonize');
     
    const options = {
        env: { PORT: 8000 },
        arg: ['server.js'],
        err: __dirname + '/out.log',
        out: __dirname + '/out.log',
     
        fd: '/Path/To/Add/Generated/demon.js'
    };
     
    await Demonize.generate(options);
    console.log('Created standalone demonize script');
